The John A. Moran Eye Center is located on the campus of the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Utah. It is part of the University of Utah Health Care system. The Moran Eye Center's annual research grants from the National Institutes of Health exceeded $6.5 million in 2005, placing it eighth in the nation for NIH grants.[2] The center has over 40 faculty members and more than 350 staff members.[2]

The Moran Eye Center is the result of a $3,500,000 donation from University of Utah alumnus John A. Moran, which became the foundation of a further fundraising effort involving patients, friends of the University, and benevolent organizations.[3]
